Yoga for Neck and Shoulders

ID : 7899   
« back to classes page
Learn how to align your neck and shoulders to relieve pain and tension. Most Americans have misaligned posture, causing the head and shoulders to move forward. The farther the head moves forward, the more stress there is on the neck muscles. Gravity takes its toll as people age, increasing the forward position of the head.

In this class you will learn:
  • stretches to open the chest
  • exercises to tone the upper back muscles
  • how to move your neck safely
  • ways to relieve tension in your neck and shoulders
  • healthy alignment so you can feel better and look better too!

This work is based on more than 40 years of research studying healthy populations, in less industrialized countries, who don't have the back pain and posture problems we have in the US. It's also the same posture that we all had as young children.

Wear comfortable clothes - no tight pants/jeans or short skirts. Bring a yoga strap if possible, or something similar that is 6-10 feet long. Please consult your physician prior to registering for any exercise program, particularly if you have any difficult health issues or any other concerns.
